As determined by the then acting Electoral Commissioner on 13 November 2014, the Northern Territory is entitled to two members of the House of Representatives.

Pursuant to sub-section 73(1) of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (the Electoral Act), the augmented Electoral Commission for the Northern Territory has determined the names of the two electoral divisions are:

  • Lingiari
  • Solomon

Pursuant to sub-section 73(1) of the Electoral Act, the augmented Electoral Commission for the Northern Territory has determined that the boundaries of these electoral divisions are as shown on the maps displayed on the Australian Electoral Commission website at www.aec.gov.au/Electorates/Redistributions and lodged in file number 16/961 at the National Office of the Australian Electoral Commission in Canberra.

The augmented Electoral Commission for the Northern Territory has made decisions in accordance with the requirements of section 56A and sub-sections 73(3), 73(4) and 73(4A) of the Electoral Act.

Subject to the provisions of the Electoral Act, the electoral divisions determined by this notice will apply from 7 February 2017 until the next determination of names and boundaries of electoral divisions in the Northern Territory is published in the Commonwealth Government Notices Gazette pursuant to sub-section 73(1) or sub-section 76(6) of the Electoral Act.
